CmdStanPy is a lightweight interface to Stan for Python users which provides the necessary objects and functions to compile a Stan program and run Stan's samplers.
Clean interface to Stan services so that CmdStanPy can keep up with Stan releases.
Provides complete control - all sampler arguments have corresponding named argument for CmdStanPy sampler function.
Easy to install,
- minimal Python library dependencies: numpy, pandas
- Python code doesn't interface directly with c++, only calls compiled executables
Modular - CmdStanPy produces a sample from the posterior, downstream modules do the analysis.
CmdStan's source-code repository is hosted here on GitHub.
